Saloon Coaches are narrow gauge luxury bogie coaches.
The Railway Series
The coaches were originally owned by the Mid Sodor Railway and used on its Boat Trains. As the Mid Sodor Railway declined, they were sold off to numerous buyers for use as summer houses, holiday chalets, henhouses, and garden sheds. Since 1959, when Mr. Peter Sam found one in a garden at Harwick, no less than eight have been rescued and restored at Crovan's GateWorks. The Talyllyn Railway also owns one.
The Saloon Coaches are based on some of the Corris Railway's bogie carriages, one of which was built in 1898 and is now owned by the Talyllyn Railway, while a few replicas were built for the Corris Railway when it was reopened in 2007.
